Bobby Fong will make the transition from the 1000 Superstock class to join Team Hammer, competing in the MotoAmerica Supersport class for the 2019 season. Fong has compiled almost 40 podium finishes in five different classes over his U.S. race career. From 2016 to 2017, Fong scored a total of 10 race wins plus two Superbike podiums, on his Superstock machine.
“I am super excited for this opportunity. The team and I have talked about me joining since 2010, but it never panned out before now. I’m here to win races on the Suzuki but also to do well in the championship, too. This is a winning package, and the team is very well established with a history of success. I have a lot of experience racing for different teams and in different classes over the years, and I am stoked to be on the 600 again with a really strong team. I think we can make it work and have a lot of success together.” – Bobby Fong #50
